From The Auditor/Head
Banco Santander Central Hispano-Madrid.
My name is Mr. James Desmond, and I work in the international operation
Department in a Local Bank here in Banco Santander Central Hispano-Madrid.
On a routine
inspection I discovered a dormant domiciliary account with a BAL.Of 36,000,000 (Thirty Six Million
Dollars) on further discreet Investigation, I also discovered that the account holder has long since passed away (dead) leaving no beneficiary to the account.
The bank will approve this money to any foreigner because the former
operator of the a/c is a foreigner and from United Kingdom in particular and
I am certainly sure that he is dead, and nobody will come again for the
claim of this money A foreigner can only claim this
money with legal claims to the account Holder; therefore I need your cooperation in this transaction.
I will provide the necessary information needed in order to claim this
Money, But you will need to open an account where this can be transferred.
If interested send your private Telephone No. And Fax number including full
details of the account to be used for the Deposit I wish for utmost
confidentiality in handling this transaction as my job and the future if my
be jeopardized if it were breached.I want to assure you that the transaction is without risk if due process is followed accordingly.
Finally,I will give you 30% for your corporation,while 65% will be for us
then, the remaining 3% will be used to offset the bills incurred in the
Course of the transfer while 2% will be for charity.
Thanks for your co-operation
Mr. James Desmond.
